Many different factors can weaken a ceiling, making it prone to collapse. Poor building materials, improper construction techniques, water damage, incorrect duct work and termites are just a few.
In New York City, property owners have a legal duty to maintain their buildings so that such accidents do not occur. Unfortunately, not all property owners live up to their responsibilities. If you were injured or a loved one was killed by a collapsing ceiling, turn to Paris & Chaikin, PLLC. Our ceiling collapse attorneys have more than 25 years of experience aggressively representing injury victims like you.
Real Results On Behalf Of Real Accident Victims
Paris & Chaikin, PLLC, recently represented a woman who sustained a serious head injury after her bathroom ceiling partially collapsed. As a result of the injury from the collapsing ceiling, she also sustained seizures on three different occasions.
Our Manhattan lawyers advocated for full compensation for this plaintiff in a full trial before the Supreme Court of Westchester County. Although the defendant claimed that it had no notice of any defects in the ceiling of the rental property, the jury found the defendant 100 percent responsible for the accident. Our client was awarded $500,000 for her injuries.
